Arm wrestling involves two participants. Each places one arm on a Pad with their elbows bent and touching the Pad and they grip each other's hand. The goal is to pin the other's arm onto the Pin pad, with the winner's arm over the loser's arm.
Technique and overall arm strength are the two greatest contributing factors to winning an arm wrestling match. Other factors such as the length of an arm wrestler’s arm, his/her muscle and arm mass/density, hand grip size, wrist endurance and flexibility, reaction time, as well as countless other traits, can add to the advantages of one arm wrestler over another. It is sometimes used to prove who is stronger between two or more people.
In competitive arm wrestling, arm wrestling is performed with both competitors standing up with their arms placed on a tournament arm wrestling table. Arm wrestling tournaments are also divided into weight classes as well as left and right-handed divisions.
